Boretti, F S; Lutz, H; Hofmann-Lehmann, R (2011). Die FeLV-Infektion der Katze: Praxis-relevante Aspekte. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 153(11):501-504.

Abstract

The feline leukemia virus (FeLV) is a retrovirus of the domestic cat that was described almost 50 years ago. The FeLV-infection may lead to fatal diseases in domestic and small wild cats. The use of efficacious diagnostics assays and vaccines led to a reduction of the FeLV prevalence; however, FeLV still poses a problem for the cat presented with the infection. This article aims to describe recent developments in diagnostics and findings in the infection pathogenesis that are clinically relevant.
